priorities like immigration reform, gay rights and other issues like that. so for president obama to make that argument, i think immediately got the audience on his side. you heard giggles after he made that point. so i don't think it's surprising at all we heard him say that. >> how do you think, ed, it might impact next year's midterm elections? what list of accomplishments can republicans point to? >> well, they can point to the fact that they've tried dozens of times to either roll back or completely cancel the affordable care act. >> how many times is that, like 42? >> 41, 42 depending how you count it. there's that. >> by the way, tried. tried. >> yes. >> so accomplishments, what are they? >> accomplishments you mean laws that actually got through the house and senate? they are very few and very inconsequential for the most part. remember, this is an argument that can be made either way. speaker boehner was making a similar argument this week saying that it's senate democrats who blocked at least 150 different measures that were sent over, things that would have rolled back federal
